Now is the Time to Go Solar

solar-panels-520594-mYou’ve heard us say it before, there are many benefits to switching to solar energy, but when is the time to switch? Now! As technology is advancing, panels are becoming thinner and more efficient. With the growing popularity of solar energy and its usefulness in our society, the government is offering more incentives and tax breaks for renewable energy.

2013 proved to be the biggest year for solar energy and we are hoping to far surpass that in 2014. According to GreenTechSolar, solar energy systems were being installed every 80 minutes in 2006, this increased in 2013 to one system being installed every four minutes. With this rising trend comes great outcome; renewable energy greatly eliminates our reliance on fossil fuels which is advantageous to our environment.

With these recent changes and growth in the demand and affordability of these systems, it’s no wonder the increase has become so great. Consider the growing popularity as an incentive in and of itself. Already, electric companies are facing a headache as they watch their incomes dwindle and the focus is being drawn to solar.

7-2010-006Now has never been a better time. We have been busy at work at Southwestern Solar and we have a strong desire to grow our reach in the Green Valley area. Let our team educate you about the best systems available and deliver the strong customer service repertoire we have developed over our years of service. We are not new in the solar game and we have both the knowledge and the expertise to get you set up with the perfect solar energy system to fit your needs.

Because some rooftops are not suitable to hold panels, you should get your home assessed. Since this is often the case, some areas may begin to offer community based opportunities that can deliver the same solar incentives you might gain from having home solar panels but at a centralized location which still decreases our reliance on fossil fuels, or you can have panels installed near your home like pictured above. If you are not sure whether your home can support solar panels, give us a call and we would be happy to give you an assessment and a quote for your home solar energy system.
